Infection Control: Hand Hygiene Audit


With micro-organisms being easily transmitted by hands, care staff are likely to be at higher risk of infections due to the nature of the job, whether it's working in a care home, or working in someone's home. Even travelling to and from work can increase their risk if they use public transport. Therefore, hand washing is crucial in preventing the spread of infection and protecting the service users and staff, particularly now as we head towards a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.


Evaluation and repeated monitoring of your care workers' knowledge and practices on hand hygiene are vital to any successful hand hygiene campaign. This Handwashing Audit can be utilised by all staff working in care homes or people's own homes. It allows the manager to observe and assess the quality of hand hygiene techniques performed by staff regularly and ensure all procedures are compliant with the Infection Control and Prevention Policy.
